ABC announced its critically acclaimed fan-favorite series “The Middle” will say goodbye as this upcoming 9th season will be its final one. After nearly a decade, executive producers of “The Middle” decided season 9 would be the best one to wrap up the story of the Heck family.
President, ABC Entertainment Channing Dungey, said in the press release, “The Heck family has been part of the ABC family for almost a decade. It’s rare for a series to have this type of longevity, and we are proud to have been its home. We’ve watched Axl, Sue and Brick grow up right before our eyes under Frankie and Mike’s unique parenting style,” adding, “I’m
looking forward to the fitting and happy ending the producers will give the Hecks and our viewers.”
The farewell season 9 of “The Middle” premieres Tuesday, October 3, at 8:00 p.m. EDT on ABC.
